Non-Degree Seeking Undergraduate Admission


            Oakland City University welcomes students who wish to take courses for personal and professional development.  We also offer certificate programs to meet your needs in the workforce landscape.  You can take classes separately from a degree program for professional development.  If you later decide to seek a degree, credit could apply towards a degree once admitted.  Non-degree seeking students are not eligible for financial aid. 



Financial Aid

After applying for admissions, you will need to file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).  It’s recommended you complete the FAFSA by February 1 for the most funding, but you can complete the form after that date.  The school code for Oakland City University is 001824.
